    How I wish “HelloFresh” was around when my children were little or when I was studying for my MBA. They have managed to come up with a concept that is pretty near perfect. Nutshell version is you pick a box which might be “Classic” which means it has a mixture of meal types, or “Vegetarian” (self explanatory I think) or “Family” which they’ve entitled “crowd pleasers.” You can choose 3, 4 or 5 meals for 2 to 5 people depending on the box which is delivered to you free of charge at an ingredients cost lower than Sainsbury’s, Ocado or Tesco.

    The photo above shows Kirsty preparing our first meal from Hello Fresh. Both she and Hello Fresh are such stars that Mark and I were able to rock up at ridiculous o’clock on Monday night after looking after Mark’s parents and hey presto lovely fresh meal prepared with very little effort on our part.

    Its actually a subscription, so you sign up and pick your box on a weekly basis or choose the same box each week as the recipes change every time. You never have to feel locked in though, as you can opt out, pause if you’re going on holiday, swap meals or entire boxes. It really is designed to work with your particular needs.

    Each meal comes with a recipe card with step by step instructions accompanied with photographs. There is no wastage as each ingredient is sent in exactly the amount you need.

    Hello Fresh

    A huge appeal for me is the fact that the ingredients are responsibly sourced. Many are organic, and the vegetables incorporated into the recipes are seasonal and therefore fresher.

    The packaging is appealing and well thought out. So, all the little bits to accompany the various meals are cleverly stored in a small box, while the things that need to be kept cold are really well wrapped with icepacks and insulated materials. They seriously have taken all the brain ache out of getting solid meals into your life which are innovative, healthy and exciting.

    you go Germaine so proud of you

  2. Not Bread bread… Hey Germaine, I’ve just tried to make your “not bread loaf”, and have had serious issues with it. Made the dough no problem, left it rest overnight as per the suggestion, and cooked it for 30 mins at 180 degrees F.
    It is not even warm on the base off the pan, far less for getting it out to turn it upside down. Is the baking temp. incorrect in the recipe? Is it degrees F or C?
    Is 30 mins and then another 30 mins correct?
    It’s going in the bin for sure, so I have just upped the temp to 375 to see if it will actually bake or not… What did I do wrong? Claudette

      Sorry Claudette. I have just looked and realised that I omitted to put the F/C for the temp. Is it indeed Celsius. I’ve updated it now. If you have a silicone loaf pan you could leave it in there for the whole hour without tipping out onto a baking sheet. So….you did nothing wrong. It was just unclear directions.
